If you were to look up the definition of the word "versatility" in a dictionary of performers, chances are you'd find the name BRIAN COPELAND somewhere near the top. The multitalented comedian, writer, television host, talk radio host and commentator has basked in the glow of both public and critical acclaim for nearly a decade. Brian's incisive, cutting-edge standup comedy cuts to the heart of some of our most serious social and political problems and has earned him spots as the opening act for such diverse artists as Ray Charles, Natalie Cole, Dionne Warwick, Donna Summer, Peabo Bryson, Steve Allen, Dana Carvey and Aretha Franklin among others.
In addition to his work in broadcasting and on the comedy stage, Brian is a serious writer with articles appearing in national newspapers and magazines. He’s here today today to talk about depression and his book Not A Genuine Black Man.”
A single father, Brian Copeland lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his children Adam, Carolyn and Casey.
